Most energy news sites treat their readers as passive consumers of information. Energy Changemakers is different. We’ve built an online platform that lets the audience actively participate. It’s a community. Or think of it like an industry conference available to you 24/7/365. The doors are always open for networking and education. And there are no planes, trains and automobiles required to get there.
Why did we take this approach?
The time has come to form a decentralized grid. The technology is there. Funding is there. Public support is there. But it’s still not easy to build distributed energy projects. That’s because our electric grid is designed for another century, governed by rules that no longer make sense, and dominated by economic models that encourage big power plants and long transmission lines — not the energy of the future, which is nimble, local, clean distributed energy.
Energychangemakers.com is designed to bring ‘all of us’ together to collectively find solutions to overcome these problems and help you build distributed energy projects. As business guru Ken Blanchard says, “None of us is as smart as all of us.”
Check out our site’s two components.
The online magazine provides news, trends, analysis, and how-to content for those working on distributed energy. We focus on five main topics: distributed generation, energy efficiency, energy storage/electric vehicles, virtual power plants and energy policy and regulation.* Please visit the magazine regularly to read our new content. You can also subscribe to our free newsletter.
This is where the action happens!
The community is a private platform to get together and work together. It’s where members can:
- Network and build relationships
- Exchange ideas
- Gain access to premium magazine content
- Put forward their work
- Gather data
- Strategize with others to advance a decentralized grid
We invite you to experience the community yourself through a free 10-day trial membership. We’d love your participation! — Elisa Wood, founder
